-- >> specific. >> it is not a goal to end tax breaks for companies that move jobs overseas and incentivize them to come back and create a million jobs in manufacturingp. we've seen the greatest increase in manufacturing jobs in more than 20 years under this president. so we have a sense of what has to happen in order to bring those businesses back and create those jobs. those aren't goals. you know, reducing our dependence on foreign oil by increasing our domestic production incentivizing clean energy to create jobs and put people back to work, those aren't goals, those are plans to continue to move this economy forward. look, i also hope that mitt romney will take some of the time paul ryan didn't want to take in his interview this weekend and try to explain the arithmetic behind their budget. paul ryan said it would take too long to explain their budget plan. the problem isn't the time and explanation. it's the math that's involved to make the statements that mitt romney and paul ryan have said line up to being anything close to the truth. and i think that governor romney will likely whether
news sunday. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. let me say it this way, you can lower tax rates by 20% across the board, by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions for home purchases, for health care. >> where is the math? and is mitt romney going to be under pressure in this debate to produce the specifics as to how it will all add up? >> well, andrea, first that's a laughable question. where's the president's plan? he's had four years, 23 million people don't have work. so let's start with that. >> the question was asked by -- the question was asked by chris wallace on fox, being asked by other republicans, where is the math, how do you add up those tax cuts, even eliminating some deductions, which deductions would you eliminate, let's be specific and how will you do that and reach deficit reduction, which programs will be cut? >> the question is,
about people who don't pay income taxes. >> right. a majority of people, 54% view it unfavorably. the low 30s view it favorably. i would say the problem we talked about it, when it happened, is gaffes or errors or missteps or things you don't want out in public that make it in the public are most damaging when they reinforce a perception that either undecided voters or the public more generally have about you. that perception created i would say by millions and millions of dollars by barack obama spending in swing states is that mitt romney is a wealthy person who is buy and large looking out for the wealthy and dismissive of the poor and middle class. video reinforced that and i would say i would point to an nbc/wall street journal poll, when you mention the middle class and romney ad, nbc wall street journal asked which candidate cares more or is more focused on the middle class. obama had a 19 point lead, 53/34 on that. i don't think mitt romney wins that question even if he wins the election but he can't lose it that badly. >> chris aliz scizilla, and tha karen. thank you for
